I shot this out the car window going up the mountain near Tortilla Flats in Arizona. I got to spend some time in the desert on horseback yesterday and am now sure that I was supposed to be born doing that but there was a mixup when I was born. LOL. I love this incredible place.

Thank you for the spotlight Maurie!
Thank you for the nomination Donna!!
